Sunday 16

Make the best use of materials and money. You can do different things as materials and money play their roles. How to make them work is important.

It wasn’t that long ago that there was snow on the ground, these past few days of record breaking warm weather for this time of year has started the “spring cleaning” buzz. Trying to catch some rays on the deck the other day was great till one neighbour started to vacuum up leaves/debris from the winter, which brought on a flurry of activity from another neighbour who decided to power wash his deck. Timing right.

“If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceable with all” Romans 12:18″

Harmony does not require sameness. A single note played simultaneously thru different instruments creates beautiful music when different chords are played.

Every day holds new blessings. Oyashikiri.

mid month 15th.

Daffodils = hope

I thought today I’d tell you a very short story. it is spring time the birds out happily singing their joy at being able to roam and search out new friends, new territories to experience, There is the promise of days and weeks of new growth and a world that is more bountiful.

Express your feelings straight away. It will be good if you could express your feelings as they are to people around you, when you are happy or when you are troubled. Also, it will be a good chance for you to get to know others.

Perfect Liberty 2023.15

Never stop being YOU, always remember that YOU matter, the days of believing that someone else will or can make you happy… belong in the once upon a time stories we were fed as kids. We are responsible for our lives and the decisions we make. Love between two people is beautiful .. and sharing your life with someone/partner/friends enriches and brings untold blessings into our lives. But in the end, you and you alone are responsible for your choices. PL Precept # 1 Life is Art.



Let’s begin today with a smile. Let’s start the day with a positive outlook, looking forward to what we can discover.

moving on

How many of you remember the days of the big bands, the nightclubs where you paid at the door for admittance, left your coat/hat with the hat check attendant before being escorted to a table by a maitre’d and were seated at a table with a clean white (usually) linen table cloth. ??? Shows were at set times, and always the musicians were in a tux or suit and the chanteuses or singer/entertainer were dressed in formal evening attire.???

Unfortunately I missed all of that. However, my Mother loved all the old movies especially the ones that were musicals. My step father was a musician who played in the big neon lit nightclubs regularly, he was a well known stand up bass player who was always being called in to cover for the big name bands that came into the city to play the clubs. Because in those days, the “known” performers travelled with their own back up musicians when they were short or needed a replacement he was top of the list.. A few times this worked for my benefit.. I got to meet “personalities” that would otherwise not have been accessible to me.

Life was different then, I remember my first summer job, was at a retail shop, we had to dress up, always wear nylons .. no nail polish, hair always neat and in place… It was unheard of for a young lady to been seen in slacks. Dress or skirt and blouse were the order of the day. Do you remember getting a run in your nylons and the “headache” it was to repair them. And ladies.. did you experience the panty hose?

Times change, and so do we. I try to think back, to remember … but it has been too many years now.. the uproar when a starlet was seen wearing slacks and a tailored blouse it was someone tall, slim and very avant garde. Whoever the starlet was, she made the movie magazines and the news tabloids. And when jeans came out… that was another whopper of a storyline. now I see commercials about people who ask to be buried in their jeans. Now.. the less clothes or more revealing an outfit is.. the more attention it gets.

Even the content of the music we listen to is different. All this to say, change is with us and is not likely to disappear anytime soon. How are you coping, do you feel that there is a generation gap? If you could find a way to bring back a part of your past … would you?

There is a musician in the States who is into “jazz” not something I spent much time listening to in years gone by, but since making his acquaintance I have been learning. His repertoire is extensive, he plays with and in many different bands so the range of his musical knowledge is vast, how he plays and what he plays depends on where he is performing and to “what” audience.. Change is evidently very much part of his life on an ongoing basis. His personal expression/likes range also, to me, who is “observing” he has taught me to listen to the music itself, how it all comes together. Words are not his form of expression, musical notes are. His personal way of expressing is through instrumental storylines.

How do you express yourself, has your method of conversing with others changed. Do you listen differently now than you did say, 5 years ago? Can you see the change in YOU. or is it a surprise to you, if someone says to you.. “you’ve changed”????

It is about how we deal with change. It is the only constant in our lives… the more we experience and deal with change, the better/ more well rounded, we become. Your thoughts?


Sometimes I need to let the world drift by – at one time I felt my participation and involvement was not something one could simply ignore. – I’ve grown up now…. I recognize that time to rejuvenate, time to simply let the body and mind rest is important to a sound, healthy, balanced life.

The simple task of walking to the front of the house to collect the recycle container, the two dogs bouncing and jumping happily beside me was pleasant. The neighbour walking her dog, stopped two houses away so that the dogs would not have to interact. I waved.. she nodded.. then the dogs and I made our way back to the backyard. A moment in time.

Simplicity. Life doesn’t have to be complicated. It is the human mind that insists on complicating the moment, with what if, maybe, perhaps if… NOOOO…. sit .. close your eyes.. open a door or window.. let the air move freely around, pushing out the stale winter air. it is a new season.

Develop new ideas through your imagination – softly and flexibly. If you could find a way to add a twist, you will have more joy.

Good morning, this is an audience attending a stage production of Grease put on by the players of a theatre group in a virtual world (Second Life) It was a full house, standing room only, I am attaching pictures and information on the show for anyone who is interested at the end of this post. You can have a look… https://virtualnws8.ca/2023/03/26/slea/

Please note that behind every avatar is a human being, The performers, the stage designers, costumes, dance routines, all these are worked out and presented to you by creative individuals with a passion to express their creativity to entertain bring smiles and a welcome moment of “thrill” to the audience. In that time, during their performance, we (the performers/audience) were gathered from all over the world.

The co-owner of the theatre company and his team had to have spent countless hours to gather the materials, or build them .. never mind the hours of rehearsal the team building, the set designing, the gathering materials, animations…what a feat. The players are from all walks of life and as I stated from all different time zones/countries. It was A M A Z I N G.

The applause, the audience appreciation was loud and genuine. It was the Makoto and the sincerity of everyone in that moment at that location that made MY day yesterday!! Wow.. to have shared in such an experience…

Put Makoto even into small things. Don’t let things go with, “Oh well” You will have a different outcome if you put Makoto

wonders we miss

Good Morning, since it is freezing rain and cold outside, I took to the virtual world to grab a few photos the other day. I posted the lying down resting by an open fire one on Instagram the other day. Just looking at the avatar chilling… squeezed a big sigh out of me… The one on the left is the avatar taking timealong her journey of discovery to dance. The opportunity was there so she took it.

Discover something new today. Have a willingness and an interest, and start your day with excitement.

Dancing is an activity that we do that it is all about the journey .. it is an opportunity to stretch our bodies, lift our arms to the sky, give space to areas in our bodies that have been dormant. It is healthy for us to be active. We get up and move, not to get somewhere but to enjoy the feeling of movement and reconnect with our bodies.

Chilling, taking time to be quiet, allow contemplation (in this example) gaze at the sky, listen to the fire crackling, watch clouds drift by, is that water in the distance, can you hear the sound of a waterfall, are the birds singing, a bee buzzing, allow the mind to drift, wander, if thoughts come, acknowledge them and then let them go… Chilling is making time for YOU.

Explore new thoughts, places, be open to the wonders around you. Do everything willingly and joyfully…

A hideaway, a secret rendez-vous.. somewhere some place, an idyllic get away, I couldn’t resist when I saw this bit of landscape, I wanted to go up and be part of the scenery.. sit under a tree, enjoy the breeze coming off the water’s edge. But … it was not my place… someone else lived there. I was a passerby … who fell in love with that moment in time.

Of course this would have made a wonderful post for my Thursday Door challenge that I participate in, but today is not Thursday, it is Sunday, and this is when the picture fell out of my file … I couldn’t pass it by. I wanted to share the moment with you. Life gets so busy at times, that what happens is we react and respond to what is before us. In my studies last night, I listened to a lecture given at one of the universities on coping and living through the many challenges and opportunities we are given in life. Believe me, they can be numerous at times.

The picture above was one taken a couple of years ago when I was exploring a part of the virtual world I had not been in before. It was another artist’s creation, another person’s vision, i was just lucky .. I saw it and captured it … Now I wish I had taken the time to see who the architect was that had the vision to produce such a welcoming environment.

If you have an adventure in your nature, there is a new build in SL called the Golden Place, (A tropical photogenic island, it has many hideaways where you an enjoy some awesome views if you love taking photos, or just being on a beach listening to music, you might enjoy transporting your avatar to the island to explore, http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Golden%20Place/99/156/22

I had a personal experience recently that showed me that I can be vulnerable and my feelings and “comfort zone” can be turned topsy turvy… life isn’t always the same old, same old “stuff”. I can’t just call up a travel agent and board a plane for Cuba or some other far away destination. I am at the moment living in a world that is smack in the middle of a snow season. Sometimes come March, spring is in the air and the world is breaking free of the winter “blues” not so this year.

As a photographer, I love the virtual world for the many opportunities I have to see and visit the creative builds of artists/builders/designers/from all over the world, The Golden Place was put together by I believe a visionary from Germany. As a music lover I can hear and experience talented performers from all over the world. I noticed the other day that there was a whole afternoon of Brazilian music being presented on another Island (Isle Du Noir).. a Brazilian guitar player from Sau Paulo … after Wes, there were two other entertainers, I believe singers (also from Brazil) who delighted audiences with their music. I was already covering the new travel location, I missed it. Still haven’t figured out how to be in two places at once.!!

I share this with you because I know I’m not alone at looking out into the snow filled world and wanting a change. We are not in a position to pick up and go anywhere at the moment, it is tax time, we are facing several more weeks of “winter” weather… exploring new possibilities within easy reach… could be an option

Meanwhile today’s calendar reads…

Always be humble. If you work on things with the attitude of asking a favour, people around you will advise you what they have noticed. there is something in fact you are not aware of that you do.

Perfect Liberty 2023.5 translation to English done in Japan.

A recent conversation with another writer/photographer was about -being alone- the comment that stuck out because I hear it so often, “I love what I do (photography) especially when I can be on my own in nature, wandering and searching out ‘possibilities”…. If you were asked your preference, do you like your alone time. is being on your own where your creativity shines through?

The ambient sounds, the birds calling, the wind, the sound of the waves … you had to be there!
